: Can anybody give me the title and auther of a good studio
lighting book? I don't want a book that just shows the finished
picture and explains what he did. I am looking for a book that
actually has diagrams, shows where the lights were placed, and
the output the photographer used. Any suggestions on who and how
to obtain one would be greatly appreciated.
: Thanks in advanced.
My all time favotite is
'Lighting for portraiture'
by Walter Nurnberg ISBN (USA only) 0-803-4305-7
Focal/Hastings House New York
Though picture wise hopelessly outdated, most picture are from
the 40's and 50's, the technical aspect is described exactly how
you say you want it.
It shows the final picture, a detailed diagram of how the lights were postioned, the type of lightsource and even the contrast you are to expect.
I don't think it still sells new, but Amazon.com knows of its existence and you could try order there.
On the net, Danny Goode has a page on his site describing the light set up for the picture's he shows, here's the URL
Hope this helps,
